Nuvias joins the GTDC ranks

Distributor joins the Global Technology Distribution Council, an organisation dedicated to promoting the value of members

The Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) has continued to swell its membership ranks, with another name familiar with the UK channel signing up to the organisation.

Nuvias Group has become the latest member of the organisation that promotes and champions distribution to the investment and vendor communities.

The distributor comes in with the ability to share insights into what is happening in the networking, security and unified comms worlds as a result of its group portfolio, and has been welcomed as an example of what a solid tier-two player looks like.

“Nuvias Group is a model for what successful technology distribution will look like today and into the future,” said GTDC CEO Frank Vitagliano.

“Its ability to flex and adapt to the changing needs of the channel will also help our organisation to better meet the evolving requirements of today’s technology vendors, resellers and solution providers – as the world continues to shapeshift around us every day,” he added.

Nuvias operates across 16 European countries with a vendor list 40-plus strong, giving it the opportunity to share lessons from the front lines of numerous markets.

For Nuvias CEO Simon England, the decision to join the GTDC was seen as part of that ongoing effort: “We’re dedicated to providing ever-greater value to the IT channel, our vendors and customers. Joining forces with the GTDC only helps us to further that mission.”

Nuvias follows in the wake of other distributors that have recently joined the organisation, with Exertis joining last March and Esprinet making the move last January. The organisation continues to expand its membership and gain more interest from that tier of distributors that includes Nuvias and Exertis.

The GTDC has been around for a couple of decades. At its annual Forum in November 2021, the council shared insights that indicated that not only were its members doing well, but vendors could do even more if they worked more closely with their distie partners.

The industry organisation also underlined that a current trend in the market is everything as a service (XaaS), an area in which Nuvias has been investing over the past 18 months.

“We’ve seen the emergence of the everything-as-a-service model that is profoundly changing how customers procure, deploy and consume IT solutions,” said Vitagliano in November. “Our industry has dealt with, and continues to experience, supply chain disruptions caused by component shortages.”
